I’m not a Taylor Swift fan, though I still say if she wrote an album full of songs like “Safe and Sound” (her contribution to the Hunger Games soundtrack), I would run out to buy it in a second. And that one dream I had in which she appeared as my girlfriend…that wasn’t so bad, either.
This, however, may be her best work yet. There’s an edge there…a kind of raw energy I’ve always felt was missing in most of the rest of her material. It’s all about that chorus. Give it a listen and you’ll see what I mean.
(Note: Because the music industry is full of capitalist vampires lacking any semblance of a sense of humour, every version of this video keeps getting removed from YouTube. Each time the video here goes dead, I’ll find another functioning one, until the end of time.)
